Africa As An Investment Destination

Food security is becoming a growing, global concern. Currently there are over 7 billion people on earth, this number is on the rise and is expected to reach 9 billion people by the year 2050. Food production will need to increase at the same rate to meet the demand. Land will be at a premium and food prices will rise markedly. The African continent provides an attractive solution to this inevitability.

The cost of land in Africa is significantly lower than other continents and there is an abundance of fertile soil with a wide range of climates for agricultural diversity. Africa can act as a breadbasket for the rest of the world and bio-fuel opportunities are also promising. Africa is not only the 2nd largest continent; it also has the fastest growing economy and is positioned to become a global player when it comes to investment. Investment in Africa goes hand in hand with social upliftment and creating opportunities for the people of the continent. A key component of UFF’s investment process is ESG. UFF implements a solid health care system and skills transfer program for farm employees on all farms.
